A Home for Cristo Rey Orlando
Putting Down Roots
We are delighted to deliver the news: Future Cristo Rey Orlando students now have a home!

A building along in the Oak Ridge neighborhood of South Orlando, along South Rio Grande, has been secured—a two-story building was initially designed as a school for interior design.

At full capacity, the building will soon serve as a campus for nearly 500 high school students, who will have access to not only classroom space, but also a chapel, cafeteria, career center, interior courtyard, and more.

Andrew Orosz, member of the Cristo Rey Orlando executive committee who served on the site selection committee, says the location is ideal as it seeks to serve members of several greater Orlando communities while being located in close proximity to a number of key job centers.

The journey to find the perfect building took roughly six months. The site selection committee was composed of a Who’s Who of Central Florida real estate professionals who conducted an exhaustive search.

“We’re confident we found the perfect facility and location for the school,” says Orosz.

Amanda Livermore, Feasibility Study Director, adds, "This building will be a sanctuary of truth, beauty, and goodness for so many — where each student discovers more about who they are and the unique value they bring to the world. A home where our students will know they are loved by us and, more importantly, by God."

Now the work of preparing the building lies ahead. The site will require around $5.4 million dollars in renovation, and if all goes as planned, will welcome its first group of students in the fall of 2025.
